Marina Diamandis of Marina and the Diamonds is on fire. She’s been pumping us up to addictive tunes like “I Am Not A Robot” and “Oh No!” for a few years now (just try to listen to “Primadonna” without dancing in your seat), and her second album, Electra Heart, was just released here in this country after hitting #1 in the UK and Ireland. Now she’s on the road, headlining venues across the US on her Lonely Hearts Club Tour. “The theme of heartbreak and the idea of being alone runs through the whole album in a tragi-comic way. It’s a human thing to fear both states of being — we all relate to that,” she said. We talked to her about her seriously catchy music and dug into what it’d be like to date her. (We definitely want to date her.)
You probably like her music now, but you’ll like her even more after reading about what she has to say. The heartbreak, she says, comes not from a recent relationship, “but some songs are based on someone I briefly dated before I wrote the album.”
She shared with us 5 things you should know about dating a pop star such as herself. (By the way, we all want to date her. She is that awesome.)
We’re working together to give away tickets to her national tour. If you live in the areas of Philly, New York, or Washington D.C., enter below to win two tickets and a $150 gift card for dinner. (Alma De Cuba in Philly, Five Points in New York, and Pearl Oyster Dive in D.C.)
Now that is one awesome date.
